It is on the second floor. The balcony has a secure gate for privacy, the main door into the apartment also has iron gates for extra security. These gates open wide and do not block any sun-light into the apartment, the main doors can open wide leaving the living area flowing into the balcony area, giving you that feeling of extra room!. The Balcony is furnished with a table with 4 Seats, it has a Sea View & view of the Volcanic Mountains, it is very private.The Complex has it's own Adult Pool (un-heated) & sun loungers. The Complex also offers access to 'Bitacora Lanzarote Club 1', apartments across the road where there is excellent facilities such as, Adult Pool, Childrens Pool, Showers, Restaurant / Snack Bar, Supermarket, Internet Access, Receptionist (very useful for calling a taxi, 50cent per call or getting directions etc!) (In peak season you may be asked not to use the sun loungers if the complex has 100% occupancy, management reserve the right to make this decision if you are permitted to use the complex or not. Just be aware if you are approached that Management have the right to do so. Normally it is OK but just to note this). We use this complex all the time when we holiday here as it perfect for our 2 children and for them to meet friends and it has everything we need to get us through the day without going into Town. Puerto Del Carmen is an ideal holiday location for couples of all ages and families with its relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. It is the centre of Lanzarotes Nightlight and is within easy distance of all the Islands key attractions.

Further details outdoors

This a no smoking property, however smoking is permitted outside on the Balcony.There is street parking at the side of the complex with ample spaces.

Location description from owner

The Canary Islands region

Lanzarote is situated just 79 miles off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 37 miles (60km) long and 12 miles (20 km) wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries.
Lanzarote enjoys a mild dry climate with average daytime temperatures ranging from about 21C in January to 29C in August. Annual rainfall is just 140mm (5.5 inches). This makes Lanzarote the perfect year-round destination. As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is Volcanic in origin. Due to the recent eruptions during the 18th and 19th Centuries, many parts of Lanzarote appear to be from another world, often described as 'lunar' or 'Martian'. The dry climate (and lack of erosion) means that the Volcanic Landscape appears much as it did just after the eruptions. Amongst the many stunning Volcanic features of Lanzarote is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km long and includes the La Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua. Despite the Volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches such as at Playa Blanca and Papagayo.



Puerto Del Carmen

Some of the Islands attractions include; Timanfaya National Park, The Cactus Garden, Arrecife Museum of Contemporary Art, Fuerteventura, El Golfo, Guinate Tropical Park, Mirador Del Rio. Other things to do are; Boat Trips, Lanzarote Markets in Teguise, Arrecife, Marina Rubicon, Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise, Haria & Mancha Blanca Market. Details of all of these can be found in the reception area of Bitacora Lanzarote Club 1 or alternatively down on the main strip there are many booking offices etc.

Every May the Iron Man is held in Lanzarote which attracts almost 1500 competitors and is an excellent event.

“Lovely quiet and clean apartment. Lovely owner to deal with”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2014

Owner's representative in Lanzarote was there to meet us on the day we arrived and arranged when to call back on our last day. Gave us some great tips. Apartment itself was fine for our needs, (my boyf and I) and it was handy having access to sister complex across the road. Only thing that would stop me going back is the hill known as "cardiac hill", but that is just because I'm lazy. It didn't prevent us from going down to the beach and resort and as we are active we walked everywhere, hill was fine at the start but we began to get tired of walking up it towards the end! Wouldn't recommend it for those with walking difficulties or of an older age but then there is nothing to stop you hopping in a taxi to come home from a night out, walking was just our choice. If you just like to lounge by the pool this apartment is perfect. There is a private pool which I rarely seen anyone in. Complex is nice and clean and the only senor cockeroaches we seen were dead ones :) Pool in this complex was quite deep, sister complex is a little shallower but deep also toward the middle. To get a lounger in sister complex though you have to be out pretty early as they were usually none free when we went over after been out for breakfast. Annoying habit of people leaving towels and heading off for hours but that happens everywhere. There is entertainment there but we always went to the old town for food in the evenings and then had a few drinks down there. There is no air con in the apartment which is a bummer so we tended to bring the fan into the room and open the window. Thankfully we weren't there for the hottest months. All in all, we had a pleasant stay and would consider going back (my boyf lost weight from all the walking but unfortunately I can't say the same! hahaha!). Jill was very easy to deal with.

“Fabulous holiday, in a fabulous apartment.”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2013

Just back from 10 days in bitacora. Apartment got everything you could possibly need, like a home from home. Ray always on hand if u need any advice on anything at all. Used the pool at Biracora 1 and also went to some of there entertainment nights that were great. Would highly recommend this apartment, price is excellent for what you get. Have stayed in 3 or 4 private apartments in Lanzarote but would always go back here if possible. Verry Happy Guest louisa

“Modern & homely appartment........well recommended.”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2012

Myself & my wife stayed in this appartment in the first week of May12. We were greeted on arrival by the key holder who gave us great advise on where to go & what to do. The appartment is located no more than a 5min walk from the beach & 10min walk from the Old town, exellent location. The appartment was modern & homely including satelite TV for all the soaps & a DVD player. The appartment was cleaned before we arrived & the cleaning lady showed us around the appartment & made sure we had everything we needed. All in all this was a wonderful appartment, in a beautiful private location & we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyway. Will be back again soon......

“Very Reasonable Priced.......for a great location !!!”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2012

I stayed at this apartment with my mother in September of last year. Reading the previous review I had to double check that this was the same place. The apartment was clean, we were met by the keyholder and it was an ideal location to both New Town and Old Town. It was well within our budget and only minutes from the beach. Air Con was working fine in the bedroom when we were there. I would definately stay here again and have recommended it to other people. In relation to how clean the complex was, this is a privately owned complex, unlike the one across the road, therefore it might not be cleaned as often, but I dont think it required it. Had no problems at all in this apartment, especially for the price we paid.

“Do not book this apartment!!”

Reviewed 18 May 2012

The ONLY reason I booked this apartment was the fact the advert states the property has air con. I double checked this with the owner before booking and he confirmed that the air con was a 'properly' installed unit. In fact, there is an air con unit but it doesn't work and hasn't been installed properly as advised - this was confirmed to us by the maintainance man who came to fix the shower screen (not reported by us so must have been reported previously). I asked him to check the air con unit and he advised the unit isn't correctly set up and never has been and despite previous tenants complaining and numerous reports to the owner, it's never been fixed. Unfortunately for us, we stayed the week of a heatwave and the temp never got below 31 degrees (day or night!!) and air con was a must especially with a 3 year old. The heat isn't the owners 'fault' but when you book a facility you expect that you can use it and it works as expected when you arrive. In addition, whilst the apartment was generally clean, the bathroom smelt of drains and the hot water was brown - really dark and disgusting. We could cope with cold showers due to the heat so this wasn't too bad and we just left the window open all the time so the smell was managable. There was also a shower room near the reception of the other building so we used that too. The complex was full of cockroaches - probably worse due to the heat - but I only ever saw anyone cleaning the communal areas once in a week! The 'holiday' side of the complex (where the pool, bar etc... are) was clean and always had cleaners etc... round and about. The location map is also incorrect, the apartment is located on Calle Alcorce. Not a great deal further but it's not as shown on the map. It's a good 25 mins walk to get to the old town harbour and 15 mins to the beach. Very very disappointed with the apartment - had the air con worked we could have made do with the other 'issues' but the fact we only booked in the first place was for air con and finding out on day 5 from the apartment maintainance man that it's never worked made me want to write a review to advise people what it's really like. The advert should not be allowed to state air con when it's not available. It genuinely spoilt our holiday and I won't be booking directly with an owner again, it's put me off using holiday lettings etc... again. I'll go back to using reputable travel agencies who are available in resort to help resolve issues instead of 'making do'

This review is not true as tenant had false details.
